JAF2013: The AEU86 spot and more AE86s!

Yesterday I already shared this photo:
JAF 2013: The six hachis of AEU86
And the reason for reposting it now is that I actually forgot to take photos of two important hachis: Oldskull’s and Mark’s three door hatchback Levins! This one does include Oldskull’s AE86 but not Mark’s.

WTF: New body panels for the AE86!

Wrecked: watch out for wannabe Takumis!

With the fresh new start of Stage 5┬áit kicks off with a fake Takumi and Keisuke (still have to watch the first episode fully…) it might be good to warn for all the real wannabe Takumis in the world that will start getting inspired again and try to do what you should not do at home kids:

Just like this Itsuki did half a year ago in the Utsunomiya prefecture…

Guess what they found inside this Tofu Special: Continue reading

HaCHiRoCK 2012: the arrival!

This is the last posting for HaCHiRoCK Festa 2012 and no: we’re not doing everything backwards. ;)
Actually I already posted up some pictures from this source yesterday, but the great thing is that he photographed all hachis arriving at the HaCHiRoCK!

Yes, that means that you can find about 200 hachis in 28 gallery pages in the Minkara gallery starting here:
